Brasenose has teamed up with Trees for Cities to host Oxford’s first ever carbon-neutral ball today.
Environmental rep Jocelyn Waller commented that the Ball committee wanted to “show that it is possible to have a normal Ball without changing much and still helping the environment.”
“We worked hard not to increase the ticket prices because we wanted people to see how easy it is to create this type of ball.
“We are hopeful that this will start a trend within Oxford Balls”.
To show the results of the evening, Morebins will be weighing the waste streams to show much was recycled.
The event’s partner agency, consultancy Environmental Perspectives, will be conducting a complete review of the environmental impact of the ball, as well as the carbon footprint, that will be shared online.
